What is wrong with me? PLEASE ANSWER.

I have been having pains everywhere for two years now. My knees, ankles, feet, shoulders, lower back, upper back, calves, thighs, wrists, hips, and leg joints. I also swell up on my face and feet/ankles. I've tried therapy several times. Every night I cry from the pain. Massages only work temporaryly and pain pills barely work. I can barely walk and lost some sensitivity on the areas that hurt. I can barely lift my self up with my hands now. It's horrible to try to not cry everyday from the pain.

Can anybody PLEASE tell me at LEAST an opinion on what I might have.

Has anyone checked to see if you have fibromyalgia or an autoimmune disorder? Several things can cause these symptoms you mention. You say you have tried therapy but you do not mention seeing a doctor and having any tests done. It is was just pain and muscle cramps it would be one thing, but the swelling is another matter. You sincerely need to see a medical doctor to get to the root of this problem.

I have seen doctors from the start. So many.... its depressing. So many hospitals, so many days missing from school.... I stopped counting it all a LONG time ago....

May I ask your age and what type of doctors you have seen and what they have ruled out? I know I am asking some personal stuff but your symptoms could be a lot of things. It is possible you have more than one health issue going on at the same time but without knowing what they proved you do not have...it would be hard to look for answers to what you might have to get a doctor to check for.

Ok, I think you need to see an endocrinologist to rule out glandular problems that can mask other diseases like thyroid disorders. Those are famous for showing symptoms of other disease but when tested for those disease...they find nothing. That is why thyroid issues are called the 'great masquerader". They look for autoimmune disorders and glandular issues too and some of your symptoms could fall in to those lists. Here is a bit about that type of doctor http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endocrinology

Yay, more science to read! My two favorite things! And thanks, the doctors look only at my muscles and bones, this might help because they are finding nothing.

Some illnesses are hard to pin point. Trust me when I say I understand. I am older than you but I live in pain 24-7 and worse yet... I am allergic to pain medication. I have even had surgeries wide awake. It is hard to be in pain all the time. Until they figure out what is causing it, try using your brain to ease some of the pain. Studies show our brain can do amazing things. Watch comedies...when it hurts bad, distract yourself with something you enjoy. When you ignore the pain it lessens. It does not go away but it does subside a little. Make sure someone checks out your glands...all of them from lymph, thyroid, to pituitary. The good part...most of those are easy tests and blood work instead of crazy machines...unless they find something more and think they need to rule it out...it won't be as hard as some of the other medical visits!

Sounds like our old friend arthritis. Could be one of the many different forms of arthritis. Go see a doc they can help no sense in suffering.

You might wanna see a doctor about this, especially since its been going on for this long! I'm not really sure what's going on though.
